I tried it in the game I just finished, and it worked. Of course, by the time I got the High Priest, the game was nearly over. There really should be another map size beyond Long, with maybe 75 sites, so that a top-level party can get a solid workout. Something happened in that game which I'd never ...

In #2 I wasn't confused; I just misspoke. I meant to write "Undertaker", not "Necromancer." So you're saying the Undertaker does use follower remains other than the first ones which are required to get him to settle in the town? Does this happen automatically or do you have to drag them onto his por...

Infrequently asked questions

I have questions concerning some fine points that I haven't seen discussed anywhere else. 1. The online manual states that certain professions are unique (only one of that type can be a follower at a time). If you evict a follower whose profession is unique, can a visitor of that profession show up ...

After playing the game a bit, I've discovered I actually can undo a screwup if I do so fast enough. If a high-level follower dies in combat because I wasn't quick enough with a healing potion, I close the game window (without actually exiting) and restart the game. It resumes from the latest autosav...

Selling items isn't that big a deal; you only get one gold per item no matter how valuable the item is. If you run out of space in your inventory before getting a merchant, just discard things (hold down shift while left-clicking on the item you want to get rid of). But do get a merchant as soon as ...

I just got Hinterlands on a download from Amazon. Is there an Orc Lords update for that, and if so where?

In my Easy game, I did have a guard and a tower when the dragons came. They chewed him up, spit him out, and had a hunter for dessert. When I stayed in town to deal with them personally, they did the same to me. (I did manage to kill one pair by using about a dozen healing potions, but once I ran ou...

How do you survive raiders?

The first time I played Hinterland, I tried it at Medium difficulty with raiders enabled. When my town had nothing except one farmer, raiders came and killed the farmer. Before I could find enough money to replace him, I starved to death. So I backed off to Easy and tried again. This time things wen...

I just discovered Hinterland and I love it, but it bugs me that you can only have one save per character. (You can't even have two different characters with the same name; making a new one deletes the old.) I'd like to be able to get the basic necessities built (maybe a couple of farmers, an innkeep...
